KTLA's Henry DiCarlo does the mea culpa

The media websphere is nothing if not an echo chamber. LA Observed posted and tweeted Tuesday night about Channel 5 weathercaster Henry DiCarlo stalking off the air during the KTLA Morning Show. By Wednesday morning the story started getting copied all over the place, and DiCarlo's fit provided a little Internet chuckle. On this morning's show, he took his lumps. Together with the producer he had vented at for cutting his weather segment, and the show's anchors, they made light of the moment. "It doesn't matter what the circumstances were — it wasn't a pretty sight for me to act like that, and I get that," DiCarlo said, never quite apologizing. "But personally, you guys have seen much worse from me, so I didn't think I was that bad."
